Like the burn line, the draw was great from start to finish. It had the right level of resistance and it really helped with delivering a concentrated amount of smoke that increased the flavor profile. You couldn’t ask for more in terms of draw.
If the cigar had smoked like it did in the second third throughout, this cigar would be fantastic and one of the best maduro offerings from the factory since the Illusione Pactum. With that being said, the final third really let down the cigar. There was a great build up from the first to second third, but it quickly went downhill. I do think it is a good cigar, and a nice Mexican offering, just not what I would hope for and anything to really write home about. Mexican wrapper releases from Casa Fernandez are usually hit or miss with me, but this one seemed to fall right in the middle. It’s good but not great. I much prefer the Natural “Cerro” offering, and find that to be a better cigar all around.
